We Need More Love In The World

Love Is All You Need


I honestly think if we love people more, we can make the world a much better place. Some people are just so mean and I believe that they are that way because they were hated or neglected at some point in their lives. I think that’s why people go on these mass shootings and killing sprees. They want attention, whether or not it is good or bad! They want someone to see them.

I was an avid researcher in the columbine incident that happened back in 1999. It was something that intrigued me. Because I wanted to know what made two 18-year-olds snap. Why did this happen? Many people have speculated many things. But I wanted to do my won digging.

What I came up with was that the two boys were mentally upset. They hated the world. Because of its injustices. Because it’s unfair. Because people were mean to them. Because they weren’t loved. If you take a look at some of these killing sprees, some of them are because they wanted that attention and they wanted to love. They just couldn’t find it.

Now do I think that shooting up a place is a good way to get attention? NO! Of course not. But, that’s why I want to be nice to everyone I meet. I don’t know what they are going, through. I don’t know their backstory. I don’t know what skeletons they may be hiding in their closet. I just want everyone in the world to feel good and loved. No one deserves to be treated like shit. I should know because I was treated so badly in school to the point where I wanted to die…. Twice.

I mean obviously my life has gotten way better since then, but I hate seeing people in the same position I was in 5-10 years ago. Hating life, lashing out at others. I love being able to talk people down and help them as much as possible. I love making people laugh and smile. That’s why I joke with a lot of people. I love making people smile. If I made at least one-person smile, I feel like that was my good deed of the day! But I feel like if I could make one person’s day better than it was before, then I’ve done a good job for that day.

Sometimes, this is hard. Some days are harder than others. The best thing to do in life is to try to be nice to others in the matter of how they treat you. This is hard a lot of the time. But, I try to always find my way through it to make sure that I treat people with kindness and respect. Because you never know what someone is going through. You never know what things have happened to them. You never know what they might do. The best thing to do in this world is to be nice to others which no one is anymore and that’s sad.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
